    HEY Y'ALL!
    just sat my ukcat and am really pissed off with the staff there, they were unbelievably loud and couldn't concentrate on my VR section so I ended up getting 590 in that section where i normally perform best!
    AR-660
    QR-690
    DA-860

    average of 700. Is this a good score and where can i apply with it?
    i got negged into oblivion for this? i mean i got below average in one section and believe some unis have individual cut offs! just to clarify so i don't look like an ungrateful ****

    Hi guys, just wondering about the UCAS process, did you also create a completely new account? Because when making it, I tried to click on the option where you can supply your old details but it didn't work, so I had to go for "I don't have either". I hope I didn't mess it up, but I did move to a different school this year. My old account still works though because I'm still able to log in to Track...:/ a bit confused
    Hi i rung up ucas and they basically deleted my old ucas account and told me to re-register for 2012. But second time round, they ask you if you already have a ucas id and if you put that in, your old details are automatically applied. hope that helps! x

    Saw you did well on ukcat. Congrats! I had mine today. Didn't do as well as I was hoping- got 682.5. Think i am going to have to reconsider my choices as I was thinking about Glasgow and Newcasle :/
    I really have to crack on with my ps - barely changed it from last year!!
    that's still really good? well done my average is high but i got below average in VR (i complained against pearson vue long story) i am not thinking about high ukcat unis, i really want to reapply to east anglia but i got rejected without interview last year and won't give me feedback
    i'm thinking;
    Liverpool
    Manchester
    Hull-york
    and not sure about a fourth

    What are you thinking for your unis?

    Ahh thanks for replying how does the tariff system work for those who are applying first time to BL? do they give ucas points for predicted A2 grades or AS grades does anyone know? I rung them today and they said they would score the highest qualification, but on the poll on the BL thread on tsr most have clicked A*A*A*A* gahhhh
    Barts have updated their website. They will rank candidates based on predicted/achieved UCAS tariff points - everything included.

    Spoiler:
    Show
    A range of criteria is used to assess candidates.

    * Candidates must meet the minimum academic requirements outlined in the section on entrance requirements and have taken the UKCAT.
    * Invitations to interview will be based on meeting our minimum academic criteria, the strength of your academic ability in your UCAS application based on achieved/predicted UCAS tariff scores compared to other applicants who apply in that same year.

    An overview of tariff scores can be found at http://www.ucas.com/students/ucas_tariff/

    UKCAT

    All candidates applying to the five-year course must take the UKCAT in the year of application in order to be considered for interview. You are required to register with the UKCAT assessment centres prior to the test. Please refer to the UKCAT website for key dates and additional information.
    How we use the UKCAT

    For school-leavers/gap year students, your UKCAT score will be considered in our selection process but it will not be the sole indicator for selection for interview. UKCAT scores will be balanced against achievement in other areas, in particular the strength of your academic ability in your UCAS application based on achieved/predicted UCAS tariff scores compared to other applicants who apply in that same year, and all indicators will be considered together.



    And I wouldn't read too much into the poll. It may be mostly predicted grades, people not being truthful or just because TSR has an disproportionate amount of A* students...or perhaps the standard really has gone up a lot this year.

    Just out of curiosity, does the UCAS tarrif mean all our A levels, (including gen studies) and I have a key skills qualification.. would all those count? If those all count, I have 640 UCAS points, but without gen studies and key skills, its only 540. I wasn't planning on applying, I just wondered...

    Pretty good score there so maybe a uni with a heavier use of the ukcat? Liverpool don't use it at all and you're well above average.

    Thanks- although I was hoping for 700's. I did worst in VR too although I expected too!
    At the moment I'm thinking;
    Liverpool
    Glasgow
    Hull-York
    and either peninsula or Newcastle (although last year newcastle's ukcat cut-off was 675 so I think this may be too risky?!)
    How do East Anglia select for interview?

    It does, anything that carries a UCAS tariff. even if they won't include it in an offer.
    This includes Key skills (worth three ucas points)
    Or any music over grade 6 (I have grade 5 in two so I don't get any for that either :P)

    That's a great score. if i were you i'd look at uni's that are more focused on how you did on your ukcat (as someone has already mentioned i think )

    Liverpool don't look at ukcat at all i believe, so (from a strategic viewpoint) i'd give them a pass unless you're applying there for another reason or you really want to go there.

    Newcastle?

    I'd also suggest Sheffield, but last year their cut-off was 717.5 i heard, so i wouldn't risk applying there with 710

    I loved Leicester when i went there last year on the open day (and indeed on my interview day) but they didn't give me an offer, and they don't accept resits, so...

    Have fun though, i'm sure you'll like it


    BTW, East Anglia (Norwich) open day anyone? Just got my tickets so i'm off to Norwich for the first time in my life on Saturday

    Everywhere accepts re-applicants.. it's people that are retaking some A levels to boost their grades (resitters) that face problems

    Ah that sucks

    I totally agree, when I went for my interview last year (got put on that dreaded waiting list) I did really fall in love with the place. Leicester gave me a last minute offer there for next year so I feel insanely lucky.

    I think you'll love UEA though - I hear the medical school there is pretty awesome, and also that the campus is very beautiful - so I hope you enjoy it there this saturday (and subsequently get an offer!)

    I'm thinking about going to the Leicester open day - I'll probably send my application off after this weekend, so it won't make a difference to my choice. I'm definitely applying to Leicester.
